Well I finally done it, it's still not 100% but it sounds better than what it did before. Heres the run down so far, I replace the rear deck subs with Kicker CompVT 6.5" 2ohm subs, the rear side panels with Infinity shallow mount 2ohm 6.5" two way speakers. I'm driving the subs with a 2 channel Power Acoustik 800 watt amp. Had an extra beat up 1farad Audobahn Capacitor so I painted it and threw it in there. In the future I'm going to replace the door and dash speakers with 2 ohm 6.5" 2 way Infinity Kappa Components. Thanks to 6QTS11OZ I was able to finish it off I could not find brackets to mount the bottom half of the amp and the capacitor.

So that’s what he was doing at your place a few weeks back…Looks like a clean & professional installation. I thought that was a DVD player for a second.
Now – upgrading your stereo is all well and good, but what is the ETA on the SC?...

Nah! I normally stay with him and his wife on Wednesdays and Thursdays. That saves me quite a bit of cash from buying less gas because I live 65 miles away from the base. Plus working 4-10s help too. I'm a Field Engineer for a government contractor so we can't live on the base. I'm very thankful and appreciate their friendship, kindness and hospitality. Plus the free meals aren't bad either. :D

I have to admit that I didn't think the subs he have would sound as good as they do. They are very, very nice. Not too much and not too little. I wonder how they would sound in the rear side panels though?

Nice job:party: how long did it take you to do?
Thanks. Well I worked on it after work so I got few hours a day in and the wife gets mad when you spend too much time on the car. I started on it Monday and got it the interior put back in Wednesday. Monday was spent tearing the car down removing the speakers and installing the side panels speakers, Tuesday was the wiring, sodering ect. got to hear it work. Wednesday I put the interior back in and prefit the system that where the pictures of the rats nest of wires came from. Thursday 6QTS11OZ(Anthony) found some steel so we could finish mounting the amp. Did not get finished results until Friday I had to find a capcitor mount, no luck with that so Anthony found a bracket I could use.

:lol:Thanks. Money is holding me back from getting a S/C, got to pay the bills first. I'm also keeping my eye on the Kenny Belle(sp)twin screw supercharger setup thats in development for the GTO's. If the price is right, gets CARB certified and the installation is factory looking like the Magnacharger I might get that insted. The MP112 will meet my needs of 450whp+, but something different is comming out so I MIGHT jump on that.

Hey! I WAS drunk and there WAS something stuck in the tail pipe. I was in the middle of nowhere, had no tools and had to get it out the best way I could. By the way, I can finally pee without pain now. :D

Oh! You're talking about done everything "mechanical" to a goat. My bad! :eek:
